Finding Your New Normal

Wow! The past 2 months have been a whirlwind

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to find a new normal with all the chaos in the world around us?

Many of us are learning to work from home, homeschooling our kids, and figuring out how to find a new normal. What initially looked like it would last a couple of weeks has turned in to months!

We are all trying to establish a new normal. For every person, it’s different, but we all have the same goal of wanting some normalcy in the midst of chaos around us.

Here are 3 Steps to Finding Your New Normal:

  1. You Need A Plan
    You are probably saving time not having to drive to work. Whether you are working or not, you need to create a schedule for yourself. You need to schedule your meals, workouts, time for work, and self-care.
    It’s essential to create a schedule and map out what you want to accomplish for the day. Otherwise, you will find yourself mindlessly wasting the day away.
    One thing that has helped many, is planning workouts. Working out at the same time each day mimics attending the same group WOD class every day. You already have that time blocked out of your day.
    If you find yourself forgetting to eat or venturing into the kitchen too often, try scheduling out your meals and snacks. Even though you are working from home, you should create a plan to prep and portion your meals to help you stay on track with your nutrition.
    Now is the time to do a pantry cleanout and make sure you set yourself up for success with healthy options readily available.
  2. Find an Accountability Partner
    You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
    Is your roommate or significant other a positive or negative influence on helping you stay healthy? If you lack someone who is a positive influence around you, it’s time to reach out to a friend (or few) virtually. Now, more than ever, you need a connection with a community of people who will help you stay healthy!
    “According to one large-scale study, having a friend, an adult sibling, or a spouse who is obese increases your own obesity risk by 57 percent, 40 percent, and 37 percent, respectively.” {Quoted from Precision Nutrition}
    Why does this matter?
    If you surround yourself with people who are a positive influence, it will be easier for you to have the support you need to stay healthy!
  3. Take Action & Track Your Progress
    Taking action is the most critical piece of the puzzle. We have 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day, but if we don’t take action, you will never achieve the results.
    You do not need to change everything at once. We recommend the opposite. Think about ONE thing that you will commit to and keep yourself accountable to that by tracking your process.
    You don’t need anything fancy. Maybe your goal is to make the virtual committed club!? Grab a post-it note and write the numbers 1-15 on it. As you exercise each day, write down the date and track the number of active days per week. Write it in your planner or add it to your Google Calendar. Sign in to the At Home WOD in Wodify. Post a video or picture in our Facebook group! We want to see your work-out Jorts and your WOD buddies (pets, kids, spouses, etc!)
    If you want more accountability and support, we can (and WANT TO) help! Please schedule a virtual check in meeting so we can chat.

Finding a new normal when there is chaos around you isn’t easy. First, you need to start with a plan. From there, you need to surround yourself {virtually} with a community that is a positive influence around you. Lastly, you need to take action.
Don’t try to change everything — just focus on one habit at a time. Focus on what you can control and turn this obstacle into an opportunity to invest in yourself and stay healthy!
